The US Copyright online search only dates back to 1978. For works dating from 1963 to 1977, the only thing that matters is the copyright notice. If one was provided, it is under copyright for 95 years from the date it was issued. If no notice was provided, it is in the public domain. There is a nice summary of copyright and public domain here.

Sorry then. I must admit that I have found 50's TV show renewels on the website, but if you say I never saw them, then I believe you.
